ChatGPT iOS App is Now Available in 11 More Countries
OpenAI has announced expanding the availability of the ChatGPT iOS app to 11 more countries; the app can now be accessed in Albania, Croatia, France, Germany, Ireland, Brazil, South Korea, New Zealand, the UK, Nigeria, and Nicaragua. The AI firm had also promised to make the app available on Android devices and many more countries soon. The viral chatbot reached 100 million active users in just two months after its public release, whereas; the most popular app TikTok took significantly longer to achieve the same feat.
The popularity of ChatGPT has led to the creation of several fake mobile apps, trying to trick consumers into paying for expensive subscriptions to access their AI. The tougher competition created among the AI chatbot apps was expected to create difficulties for CbatGPT, but the launch of the official apps destroyed all such perceptions as it emerged as the top-performing app in the App Store. It has outperformed most of its rivals, including popular AI and chatbot apps as well as Microsoft’s Bing and Edge apps.
The Dark Side of AI Chatbots
While ChatGPT, as an advanced language model, offers numerous benefits and capabilities, but it has risks. One of the primary concerns associated with ChatGPT is the potential for misinformation and manipulation. As an AI, it relies on the data it has been trained on, which may include biased or inaccurate information. This can lead to the generation of misleading or false responses. Moreover, malicious actors can exploit ChatGPT to spread disinformation and propaganda or engage in harmful activities such as phishing or scams. The ability of ChatGPT to convincingly mimic human conversation can make it difficult to distinguish between genuine and AI-generated content, increasing the risk of deception.
